I made an effort to get a Fedora 19 image running in EC2 this week,
the end, I undid a couple of the recent changes to make it work for me.
Here's a brief overview of what I did:
1) appliance-creator was giving me an error when the "part" line of the
kickstart had no "ondisk" option, so I added "--ondisk xvda". This
shouldn't be needed, but it helped in my case.
I have a patch to appliance-creator which _should_ make this optional --
Dennis is going to take over upstream maintenance and I think will include
Is "xvda" right for _within_ appliance-creator?
2) I also commented out the "Zeroing out empty space"
because it drastically increases the image build time for not much benefit,
One time image build cost vs. whatever benefit multipled by every time the
image is used. :)
9) I removed the "splashimage" line from grub.conf, because
not useful and could be harmful
10) I copied /boot/grub/grub.conf to /boot/grub/menu.lst, because I
know whether pvgrub in EC2 reliably reads both files (it's supposed to).
I think it'll be okay either way, but maybe we should make a symlink?
